Fabris G. Luca, an Elvis researcher assisting Ernst Jorgensen with his Sun project, is looking for help from Elvis fans. He contacted the guys from the E.I.N site with a request for help. In it he gives several details on this upcoming release.
We asked Ernst Jorgensen for confirmation of the facts and his reaction was: "No, nothing is finalized yet. But Luca is a great guy, and helps me".
"I'm an Elvis researcher expecially on the early days. Mainly all these researches are in relation to a book/CD project for the Elvis fan club network I've been asked to help with.
It's a 3/4 CD 200 pages book about Elvis stay at SUN records by Ernst Jorgensen. I am now helping detail the period from July 1954 through to the end of 1955.
Ernst is BMG's chief at Elvis music archivist. The book will consist of more than 400 early photos - half of them previously unpublished. It's not an attempt of once again write the story of Elvis Presley, but more a collection of information, photos, memorabilia and stories shared by fans who where there at the time. The book will not deal in gossip or other unpleasant material - it's all about the innocence of the time and the impact of Elvis' music.
We are trying to document every single show Elvis did, and we have come fairly close. So I'm looking for photos, recordings from Louisiana Hayride or Opry, or any live radio gig or interview .... anything is welcome from the 50s!!
And while Elvis played the Mississippi area a lot during 1955 we have very little information and no photos at all!"
